MoDOT Releases Regional Transportation Priorities It takes some time to assemble $4.8 billion in transportation projects, but the work is nearly complete. The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission released a draft list of the transportation projects and improvements that could improve safety, create jobs, and boost Missouri’s economy for the next ten years. Local planning agencies and transportation partners have been working with the Commission and the Missouri Department of Transportation to develop the list, which was required as part of the provisions of Constitutional Amendment 7. “We knew the local transportation partners had to lead the way to make sure the list represented every region of the state,” said MoDOT’s Chief Engineer Ed Hassinger. “Everyone benefits from transportation, but this list truly demonstrates a collaborative effort to reach the specific needs Missourians told us were the most important.” To help gather public feedback on the draft list, the Commission established a public comment period of June 13 through July 3. After all public comments are reviewed, the
draft list will be updated and approved by the Commission at its July 9 meeting. Open house public meetings have been scheduled in every region of the state so local transportation planners and MoDOT representatives can answer questions and take comments about the draft list. Project lists are also available at every MoDOT district office in the state. The entire transportation improvement list, a schedule of open house meetings, and an online comment form are available at www.modot.org/movingforward. On August 5, Missouri voters will decide on Amendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri’s sales tax by ¾ of a cent. All proceeds from the 10-year tax would go toward much-needed transportation improvements across the state. The amendment’s provisions include the creation of a project list prior to the election so Missourians can see what their tax dollars would fund. “The culmination of this process and the regional priority lists released today would mean safer transportation for all Missourians,” added Hassinger. “We
look forward to any additional feedback we receive as we finalize the priorities leading up to July 3.” For more information, visit www.modot.org/movingforward or contact MoDOT’s customer service center at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888275-6636). According to a press release from MoDOT Amendment 7 will provide an estimated $5.4 billion in funding for transportation projects over 10 years (2015-2025) The measure provides that 90 percent of the revenue, an estimated $480 million annually, will go toward state transportation initiatives. Ten percent, or an estimated $54 million annually, will be split among cities and counties for transportation projects. The sales tax increase will not be applied to purchases of medicine, groceries and gasoline. Fuel taxes will not increase and toll roads will not be implemented over the 10-year time period. The sales tax revenues can be used for ANY transportation purpose (road and bridge improvements, urban and rural transit, friendlier bike and
pedestrian accommodations, improvements in rail, ports and airports). Every region will prioritize the projects to meet the direct transportation needs of residents and businesses in their communities. The regional project priority lists will be completed in June. A statewide list will be presented to the MHTC for its approval at a meeting in Jefferson City on July 9. Proposed projects for Lewis County include : Resurface Business 61 from Rte 61 to Rte B in Canton ; Resurface Business 61 from Rte 61 to Rte B in LaGrange; Resurface Rte 156 from Knox County to Rte 6; Resurface Rte C from Rte 6 to Business Rte 61; Resurface Rte 81; Resurface Rte A from Rte E to Rte 16; Replace/repair the Rte 156 bridge over Seeber Branch; Replace/repair the Rte 156 bridge over Spees Branch. Replace/repair the Rte 16 bridge over the North Fabius River; Replace/repair the Rte 16 bridge over the Mid Fabius River; Improve the terminal for the Lewis County-Canton Port Authority; Improve the Highland High School entrance on Rte 6 near Ewing.

EDITORIAL IMAGES OF YESTERYEAR
Letter to Editor With Memorial Day behind us, the 4th of July will be upon us soon. There is a real estate agency in our community that place small flags in the ground around our town and the surrounding area for July 4. Although it looks nice on that day, they do not return and retrieve the flags the next day. By July 6, the flags are laying in the dirt and mud all over town. Many times, my wife and I have picked up flags in order for them to not lay in this condition. Not only is this disrespectful to the flag and the people who have defended it, including myself, the agency also attaches their company business card to the staff of these flags. According to Article 8.1 of the United States flag
code, “The flag should never be used for advertising purposes. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown”. I am sure this agency thinks this is a “nice” way to advertise their company, but many feel it is a blatant misuse of the symbol of our freedom. Hopefully, someone from this company will read this letter and realize they are in violation of the United States Flag Code and if they display the flag, they have the responsibility to display it properly. Sincerely, Lyle Link Vietnam Veteran Member American Legion Lifetime Member VFW

America’s longest living resident can be found in California’s White Mountain. It is the bristle cone pine tree. Scientist have dated one 5,063 years old. This pine only grows as little as one inch every 100 years. Its wood is very hard so it can withstand the elements and guards agains rot. I think I saw the most squirrels ever Saturday on the South side of Quincy. There were 7 of the little bushy tailed rodents crossing the street together. We braked for them. Nancy Howe spent last Saturday in Springfield, Ill. While there she attended the graduation of her granddaughter, Caitlyn Kunz. Caitlyn will be attending Southern Illiois University, Edwardsville. The ceremony was held at the Civic Center and midway through everyone was evacuated to the lower level as the tornado sirens were going off. Later the ceremony reconvened and the rest of the graduates received their diplomas. While there she spent time with both the Bob and Jayne Kunz family and the Matthew and Tina Foley family. Cheryl and Mike Lowe took her mother, Flossie Foust to supper at the Saints Avenue on Friday the 13 to honor her on her birthday. While at the restaurant she visited with her former neighbor, Bessie Stambaugh. On Fathers Day Michelle and Charles King, Lisa, Kaylee and Karlie and Heide Kline Reese and Alec were dinner guest and wished their Dad best Fathers day greetings. Jim Shutwell was honored with a dinner on Sunday by his wife, Ruth and girls, Angela Solter and Melissa Shutwell. Happy Fathers Day. Roger and Linda Job joined cousins Stan and Charlotte Miner for lunch at the boat on Monday. Lots of visiting took place before they parted. Fathers Day greetings were given by phone to Donald Weathers Sunday from all his family in Chicago. Besides all their sons and family Fathers Day, Alvin and Mary Vaughn had Alice Davidson and Evelyn Evans as guests. Earlier in the week they had visited Liz Waterman who is presently at Good Samaratan Home in Quincy and doing much better. Phyllis Heindselman was joined on Tuesday by Elaine Jamison, Georgia Richter and Teresa Stahl for lunch in Canton. Wednesday was her sister, Mary Lou Reinebagh birthday and they spent an enjoyable lunch celebrating that. She enjoyed pizza at the Pizza Hut with Cathy
English on Thursday and her daughter, Kelly Fast flew home for Fathers Day and to visit family. On her return trip she stopped in Kansas City to visit her son, Ian and then back to Indiana. Gloria Meyer, Linda Hess, Betty Lillard, Sharon Mitok and Nancy Howe of the La Grange Garden Club attended the 2014 Northeast District Spring Meeting on June 9 at the Garth Mansion. It was a beautiful day to be at the Mansion and everyone enjoyed the meeting and luncheon. This past Saturday evening Nancy Howe went to Springfield, IL to watch her granddaughter, Caitlyn Kunz perform at her last recital. After 15 years, she will be going off to college. She performed a beautiful senior solo. Nancy then spent the night with Matt and Tina Foley. Donna and Jeffery Reid fixed dinner for family and especially Jerry and Jenny Reid on Fathers Day. Fathers Day all of Bert and Pat Cottrell children were able to be present to wish him all the best. Their daughter, Pam Shubert from Lake of the Ozarks arrived Saturday and spent the night.Tammy, Brad, Teddie, Brady, Braxton, and Brayden Neil and Kevin and LaVon joined the group after church for a wonderful dinner and visit. Tammy called on her Uncle Roger to wish him a great Fathers Day. Janice Smith from Wisconsin was here for a visit with her dad, Bruce Solter and they were joined by Alice Solter when they drove to Keokuk to visit Bruce’s sister Pearl Washburn. Tina McCutchan fixed a barbeque cook out for her son Hunter, Crystal, Chevelle and Tucker McCutchan on Tuesday evening. The following evening he son Todd, Lynn, Dakota and Ben were supper guests. The children enjoyed playing with their cousins, Eli and Nick who are spend a week with their grandma, Tina. Friday evening Tina, Eli and Nick saw the movie How to Train Your Dragon 2 in Quincy. Conni Blessing and a long time girl friend spent three days on a girl outing at the Lake of the Ozarks last week. Fathers Day they had a fish fry for Bob and enjoyed the lovely weather. A beautiful little blond, blue eyed girl found delight in catching bullfrogs. The elders enjoyed watching the display and joy of such a simple game. Stan and Charlotte Miner spent Thursday until Sunday at the music festival in Unionville, Monday. They have attended this get together for six years.
Rosemary Jett and family co-hosted the family b.b.q . last week with Jimmy Goodwin. Kork Goodwin was also a guest. These names were unintentionally omitted in last week’s column and the correspondent regrets the error. Brenda Goings, Claire Wehremann and Erma Dee Jones attended Friendship Night at Kirksville Eastern Star Monday evening. A delicious meal and the pinning of two 50 yr. Membership jewels in the dining room preceded the meeting. The Kirksville Commandry unit, attired in full uniforms, presented a full rendition of their Drills and Marches to open meeting upstairs in the Masonic Hall. On Thursday evening the three ladies went to Wayland for Kahoka Chapter No. 40 Friendship Night. There was another bountiful meal served, followed by an auction of miscellaneous items with proceeds going to the Relay For Life which the OES strongly supports. The team of auctioneers, Joan Raga and Shawn McAfee did a remarkable job of conducting the auction and making it a fun time. During the formal meeting which followed, Flag Day, Father’s Day, and a Friendship appreciation program were held led by Worthy Matron, Delma Smith. Shawn McAfee, in full hobo costume, took the DDGM, Sister Roberta McAfee on a hilarious picnic. Friday was Donnette Carter’s birthday and she and a group of friends went to lunch at the Avenue of the Saints in Canton. Present were Denise Goodwin, Betty Knocke, Jan Geisendorfer, Debbie Price and Jen Woodard. Saturday morning Denise Goodwin conducted the last “Meet and Greet” brunch at LaGrange Senior Housing which was well attended. She and David then went to LaBelle ad walked the Rodeo parade route and then attended the Rodeo in the evening. Karen Veatch went to the Methodist Church at LaGrange ice cream social on Denise’s behalf as she was at two other places. On Father’s Day Denise
and David called on Marvin and Mary Goodwin. Bonnie, Phil and Lacy Roberson and Karla Richmond attended the LaBelle Rodeo Frida and participated in the Rodeo Parade on Saturday. Later they had super at Bonnies. They celebrated Phil’s birthday and Father’s Day (which was on the same day) by eating out at Los Nopales Mexican Restaurant in Canton. Sunday after attending church at Monticello Baptist, Bonnie and Phil had lunch at Avenue of the Saints in Canton. Lucy spent time with her dad on Sunday. Betty and Don Barron observed their 64th wedding anniversary on Sunday the 15th of June. Guests of Francis and Karla Richmond from Thursday till Sunday were six good friends from out of state, namely Shannon and Dana Davis, Springfield, Il; Gene and Kathy Gau and Jerry and Lathy Koraleski, Omaha, Neb. Kent and Reta Richmond and four children, Tisha Tessa, Hope and Kaden of Maywood were Saturday afternoon and evening additional guests. The men are car buffs to the max and the ladies enjoyed a sample of country living, cooking and baking as well as long walks in between rain showers, and catching up on the happening of their families since their last visit… Jeremy and Regina Dredge, Shailee and Codee attended the Fishing Derby at Deer Ridge Lake. Shailee received a prize for catching the smallest fish in her age group. The entire family went to the Bus 18 Benefit at LaGrange Saturday. It was held at the Youth Center and the rain persuaded most events to be held indoors. Sunday the Dredge family, easily recognized by their yellow shirts, attended the Taco Lunch at the Methodist Church in Monticello. At the real estate auction of Georgia Mae Felter on Saturday, Jeff Smith was the successful bidder of the property. Thought for the day: Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.

South Union Baptist Church recognized fathers Sunday in their worship service. Next Sunday, June 22, Children’s Day will be observed during the worship service. The congregation puts a penny in for each year they are old and the money gifts are sent to the Missouri Baptist Children’s Home. After the worship service hotdogs, and strawberries and ice cream are enjoyed. There will be a a special message from the Children’s Home and everyone is invited to join them for this special Sunday. The Maywood Post Office now has hours of 12 to 4 on week days and Russell Brownell is the Acting Postmaster. Russell wears a lot of hats. He is in charge of the cooking for the Mt. Salem/ Wyaconda Church Camp that was held this past week and returned this week for the 4-H camp. Charilyn Stalder, Gail Dietrich, and Nancy Pindell were at the church camp on Tuesday morning to help with the breakfast. Russell gets a lot of compliments on his good cooking! Charilyn Stalder attended her granddaughter’s dance recital in Quincy on Saturday evening and helped her grandson, Nick Waters, celebrate his birthday on Monday. Irene Durst attended a baby shower for her granddaughter, Saman-
tha Cramsey, on Saturday. A number of family and friends attended. Loretta Bringer attended the Hannibal Regional Hospital Auxiliary Board meeting on Monday and had an orientation for a new member in the afternoon. Paul and Irene Durst met Nancy and Wayne Snodgrass on Tuesday evening at the Coach House for supper. Bobby Shepherd celebrated his birthday on June 6th with dinner at the Patio in Quincy. Others enjoying dinner were Rachel Bringer Shepherd, Dalton Shepherd, and Marvin and Loretta Bringer. Sunday afternoon callers to visit Marvin Bringer were Ann Brink and Gene Trautvetter. Steve Griesbaum is home after an extended stay in Barnes Hospital. He grew up in Maywood and has family living here and taking him for doctor visits. I am sure he would enjoy cards of encouragement. His address is Box 207, LaGrange, Mo 63448. The Hester bridge that is closed on Rt. A is causing some inconvenience for a number of folks. When it is new and wider I am sure we will be enjoy it. For now, there are no easy detours. For people going to work everyday I am sure it is a problem. With good weather it should be open again sometime in July.
Friends in the Garden Event to be Held Those who love to roam among beautiful flowers, trees, and shrubs have a real treat in store for Saturday afternoon, June 21. “Friends in the Garden,” an event sponsored by Friends of Athens will provide a full afternoon of enjoyment for area gardeners and anyone who loves to look at flowers skillfully displayed in a large, lovely garden. The event will be held at the home of Kelly and Jo Bryant near Revere, MO. During the hours of 1 to 5 p.m. visitors can listen to short programs on a variety of topics, roam through the garden, buy plants and other Friends of Athens merchandise, and relax in the shade with a plate of cookies and some cold lemonade. Starting at 1:30 four short workshops will be offered in rotation so visitors can attend any or all of them if they wish. Sandy Stone will speak about native pollinators and the plants that attract them; Steve Jervey will talk about blue bird boxes and how to at-
tract the birds to a garden; Vivian Perry will demonstrate how to preserve and press flowers from the garden; and Jo Bryant will show how to plan, plant, and use herbs. The Bryant garden can be reached by turning from Highway 27 in north Missouri (close to the Iowa border) onto State Highway C, turning into Revere and stopping at the stop sign, then turning left onto “DD” and traveling about 2 miles to the Bryant home. From highway 81north, turn east to Revere and continue as stated above. There will be very visible signs along both routes to guide visitors. Admission to the afternoon activities is simply a donation to Friends of Athens, a group supporting the Battle of Athens State Historic Site. The group’s mission is to promote the Site through volunteer service, educational programs, and financial support. In case of rain the event will be canceled.

Don Patrick, president and chief executive officer of the not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) has announced that the 12-county-area social service, community health and public housing agency has been authorized to process direct home loans for USDA Rural Development and will be administered by the agency’s Housing Development Programs Department. Patrick said the move is expected to ease the process for people who apply for low-income and moderate-income people who apply for USDA Section 502 home loans, and that NECAC is the first nonprofit in Missouri to be awarded the designation, Carla Potts, NECAC deputy director for housing developments, said the honor was the result of the agency’s commitment to housing programs. “This will help families in our area access USDA loans a lot faster,” Potts
said. “In addition to USDA offices, they’ll now be able to visit any NECAC location to start the loan process. It will save time and travel expense. We’re very excited about this opportunity.” Section 502 loans are used mostly by incomequalifying people to buy homes in rural areas. Funds can also be used to repair an existing home and upgrade facilities such as water and sewer services. Families must be able to afford the mortgage payments, including taxes and insurance. Loans are for 30 years, with the interest rate set by the lender. There is no down payment. “Section 502 loans are another option that families in our area have to realize the dream of home ownership,” Potts said. “We welcome the opportunity to put more people on the path to their own home.” NECAC offers life home ownership classes that teach participants
about housing opportunities and financing, obstacles to home-ownership, record-keeping, understanding credit, cash flow, meeting with financial institutions, getting a loan, taxes and other topics. Each year, NECAC home ownership programs put 45 to 70 families on the road to a house purchase. In addition to USDA Rural Development, the agency works in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Federal Home Loan Bank, NeighborWorks America, the St. Louis HOME Consortium and other organizations to provide home-ownership opportunities. More information about Section 502 loans is available by calling NECAC at 573-324-6622 or the NECAC County Service Coordinator in Lewis County: Judy Eaton, 408 S. Fourth in Canton. The phone number is (573)288-3969.

The Department of Natural Resources conducted a source water assessment to determine the susceptibility of our water source to potential contaminants. This process involved the establishment of source water area delineations for each well or surface water intake and then a contaminant inventory was performed within those delineated areas to assess potential threats to each source. Assessment maps and summary information sheets are available on the internet at http://maproom.missouri.edu/swipmaps/pwssid.htm. To access the maps for your water system you will need the State-assigned identification code, which is printed at the top of this report. The Source Water Inventory Project maps and information sheets provide a foundation upon which a more comprehensive source water protection plan can be developed.

Why are there contaminants in my water? Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Contaminants that may be present in source water include: A. Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. B. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. C. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. D. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. E. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the Department of Natural Resources prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Department of Health regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
The Lewis County Board of Equalization will meet July 15, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. First step is to contact the Assessor and try to resolve the issue (573-767-5209). Second step if it can not be resolved ask Assessor to make an appointment with the County Clerk’s Office at 573-767-5205. Appeals to Board of Equalization or to ask for an appointment must be made by July 8th. 1st Pub. June 19, 2014
Is our water system meeting other rules that govern our operations? The Missouri Department of Natural Resources regulates our water system and requires us to test our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. Our system has been assigned the identification number MO2010440 for the purposes of tracking our test results. Last year, we tested for a variety of contaminants. The detectable results of these tests are on the following pages of this report. Any violations of state requirements or standards will be further explained later in this report.
How might I become actively involved? If you would like to observe the decision-making process that affect drinking water quality or if you have any further questions about your drinking water report, please call us at 573-655-0211 to inquire about scheduled meetings or contact persons.
Do I need to take any special precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791).

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. LAGRANGE is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791) or at http://water.epa.gov/drink/info/lead/index.cfm.
Contaminants Report Definitions: Population: 931. This is the equivalent residential population served including non-bill paying customers. MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level Goal, or the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. MCL: Maximum Contaminant Level, or the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. SMCL. Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level, or the secondary standards that are non-enforceable guidelines for contaminants and may cause cosmetic effects (such as skin or tooth discoloration) or aesthetic effects (such as taste, odor or color) in drinking water. EPA recommends these standards but does not require water systems to comply AL: Action Level, or the concentration of a contaminant which, when exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow.. TT: Treatment Technique, or a required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water. 90th percentile: For lead and Copper testing. 10% of test results are above this level and 90% are below this level. Level Found: is the average of all test results for a particular contaminant. Range of Detections: Shows the lowest and highest levels found during a testing period, if only one sample was taken, then this number equals the Level Found. MRLDG: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal, or the level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDL: Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level, or the highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. RAA: Running Annual Average, or the average of sample analytical results for samples taken during the previous four calendar quarters. LRAA: Locational Running Annual Average, or the locational average of sample analytical results for samples taken during the previous four calendar quarters.
The state has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Records with a sample year more than one year old are still considered representative.

sibility of the Registered Owners of the Bonds.

In compliance with Section 3406 of the Code, such amount may be deducted by the Paying Agent from amounts otherwise payable to such Registered Owner hereunder or under the Bonds. (d) The City and the Paying Agent shall not be required (1) to register the transfer or exchange of any Bond after notice calling such Bond or portion thereof for redemption has been given or during the period of fifteen days next preceding the first mailing of such notice of redemption, or (2) to register the transfer or exchange of any Bond during a period beginning at the opening of business on the day after receiving written notice from the City of its intent to pay Defaulted Interest and ending at the close of business on the date fixed for the payment of Defaulted Interest pursuant to Section 204 hereof.

All payments so made to any such Registered Owner or upon the Registered Owner’s order shall be valid and effectual to satisfy and discharge the liability upon such Bond to the extent of the sum or sums so paid, and neither the City nor the Paying Agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary. (f) At reasonable times and under reasonable regulations established by the Paying Agent, the Bond Register may be inspected and copied by the Registered Owners of 10% or more in principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding or any designated representative of such Registered Owners whose authority is evidenced to the satisfaction of the Paying Agent.

(a) Each of the Bonds, including any Bonds issued in exchange or as substitution for the Bonds initially delivered, shall be signed by the manual or facsimile signature of the Mayor, attested by the manual or facsimile signature of the City Clerk, and shall have the official seal of the City affixed thereto or imprinted thereon. In case any officer whose signature appears on any Bond ceases to be such officer before the delivery of such Bond, such signature shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes, as if such person had remained in office until delivery. Any Bond may be signed by such persons who at the actual time of the execution of such Bond shall be the proper officers to sign such Bond although at the date of such Bond such persons may not have been such officers. (b) The Mayor and City Clerk are hereby authorized and directed to prepare and execute the Bonds as herein specified, and when duly executed, to deliver the Bonds to the Paying Agent for authentication. (c) The Bonds shall have endorsed thereon a certificate of authentication substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit A attached hereto, which shall be manually executed by an authorized signatory of the Paying Agent, but it shall not be necessary that the same signatory sign the certificate of authentication on all of the Bonds that may be issued hereunder at any one time. No Bond shall be entitled to any security or benefit under this Ordinance or be valid or obligatory for any purpose unless and until such certificate of authentication has been duly executed by the Paying Agent. Such executed certificate of authentication upon any Bond shall be conclusive evidence that such Bond has been duly authenticated and delivered under this Ordinance. Upon authentication, the Paying Agent shall deliver the Bonds to or upon the order of the Purchaser of the Bonds upon payment of the Purchase Price to the City. Section 207. Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Bonds. (a) If (1) any mutilated Bond is surrendered to the Paying Agent or the Paying Agent receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Bond, and (2) there is delivered to the City and the Paying Agent such security or indemnity as may be required by the Paying Agent, then, in the absence of notice to the City and the Paying Agent that such Bond has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the City shall execute and the Paying Agent shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Bond, a new Bond of the same Stated Maturity and of like tenor and principal amount. (b) If any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Bond has become or is about to become due and payable, the Paying Agent, in its discretion may pay such Bond instead of delivering a new Bond. (c) Upon the issuance of any new Bond under this Section, the City or the Paying Agent may require the payment by the Registered Owner of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Paying Agent) connected therewith. (d) Every new Bond issued pursuant to this Section shall constitute a replacement of the prior obligation of the City, and shall be entitled to all the benefits of this Ordinance equally and ratably with all other Outstanding Bonds. Section 208. Cancellation and Destruction of Bonds Upon Payment. All Bonds that have been paid or redeemed or that otherwise have been surrendered to the Paying Agent, either at or before Maturity, shall be cancelled by the Paying Agent immediately upon the payment, redemption and surrender thereof to the Paying Agent and subsequently destroyed in accordance with the customary practices of the Paying Agent. The Pay-
ing Agent shall execute a certificate in duplicate describing the Bonds so cancelled and shall file an executed counterpart of such certificate with the City. Section 209. Sale of Bonds.

_________________ † Final Maturity At its option, to be exercised on or before the 45th day next preceding any mandatory Redemption Date, the City may: (1) deliver to the Paying Agent for cancellation Bonds subject to mandatory redemption on said mandatory Redemption Date, in any aggregate principal amount desired; or (2) furnish the Paying Agent funds, together with appropriate instructions, for the purpose of purchasing any Bonds subject to mandatory redemption on said mandatory Redemption Date from any Registered Owner thereof whereupon the Paying Agent shall expend such funds for such purpose to such extent as may be practical; or (3) receive a credit with respect to the mandatory redemption obligation of the City under this Section for any Bonds subject to mandatory redemption on said mandatory Redemption Date which, prior to such date, have been redeemed (other than through the operation of the mandatory redemption requirements of this subsection (b)) and cancelled by the Paying Agent and not theretofore applied as a credit against any redemption obligation under this subsection (b). Each Bond so delivered or previously purchased or redeemed shall be credited at 100% of the principal amount thereof on the obligation of the City to redeem Bonds of the same Stated Maturity on such mandatory Redemption Date, and any excess of such amount shall be credited on future mandatory redemption obligations for Bonds of the same Stated Maturity in chronological order, and the principal amount of Bonds of the same Stated Maturity to be redeemed by operation of the requirements of this Section shall be accordingly reduced. If the City intends to exercise any option granted by the provisions of clauses (1), (2) or (3) above, the City will, on or before the 45th day next preceding each mandatory Redemption Date, furnish the Paying Agent a written certificate indicating to what extent the provisions of said clauses (1), (2) and (3) are to be complied with respect to such mandatory redemption payment. Section 302. Selection of Bonds to Be Redeemed. (a) The Paying Agent shall call Bonds for redemption and payment and shall give notice of such redemption as herein provided upon receipt by the Paying Agent at least 45 days prior to the Redemption Date of written instructions from the City specifying the principal amount, Stated Maturity, Redemption Date and Redemption Prices of the Bonds to be called for redemption. If any Bonds are refunded more than 90 days in advance of such Redemption Date, any escrow agreement entered into by the City in connection with such refunding shall provide that such written instructions to the Paying Agent shall be given by or on behalf of the
City not less than 45 days prior to the Redemption Date. The Paying Agent may in its discretion waive such notice period so long as the notice requirements set forth in Section 303 are met. The foregoing provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to the mandatory redemption of Bonds hereunder, and Bonds shall be called by the Paying Agent for redemption pursuant to such mandatory redemption requirements without the necessity of any action by the City and whether or not the City shall hold in the Debt Service Account moneys available and sufficient to effect the required redemption. (b) Bonds shall be redeemed only in the principal amount of $0.01 or any integral multiple thereof. Bonds of less than a full Stated Maturity shall be selected by the Paying Agent in $0.01 units of principal amount by lot or in such other equitable manner as the Paying Agent may determine. (c) In the case of a partial redemption of Bonds at the time Outstanding in denominations greater than $0.01, then for all purposes in connection with such redemption each $0.01 of face value shall be treated as though it were a separate Bond of the denomination of $0.01. If it is determined that one or more, but not all, of the $0.01 units of face value represented by any Bond are selected for redemption, then upon notice of intention to redeem such $0.01 unit or units, the Registered Owner of such Bond or the Registered Owner’s duly authorized agent shall present and surrender such Bond to the Paying Agent (1) for payment of the Redemption Price and interest to the Redemption Date of such $0.01 unit or units of face value called for redemption, and (2) for exchange, without charge to the Registered Owner thereof, for a new Bond or Bonds of the aggregate principal amount of the unredeemed portion of the principal amount of such Bond. If the Registered Owner of any such Bond fails to present such Bond to the Paying Agent for payment and exchange as aforesaid, such Bond shall, nevertheless, become due and payable on the Redemption Date to the extent of the $0.01 unit or units of face value called for redemption (and to that extent only). Section 303. Notice and Effect of Call for Redemption. (a) Unless waived by any Registered Owner of Bonds to be redeemed, official notice of any redemption shall be given by the Paying Agent on behalf of the City by mailing a copy of an official redemption notice by first class mail at least 30 days prior to the Redemption Date to the Purchaser and each Registered Owner of the Bonds to be redeemed at the address shown on the Bond Register. (b) All official notices of redemption shall be dated and shall contain the following information: (1) the Redemption Date; (2) the Redemption Price; (3) if less than all Outstanding Bonds of a maturity are to be redeemed, the identification number, Stated Maturity, and, in the case of partial redemption of any Bonds, the respective principal amounts of the Bonds to be redeemed; (4) a statement that on the Redemption Date the Redemption Price will become due and payable upon each such Bond or portion thereof called for redemption and that interest thereon shall cease to accrue from and after the Redemption Date; and (5) the place where such Bonds are to be surrendered for payment of the Redemption Price. (c) The failure of the Purchaser or any Registered Owner to receive notice given as heretofore provided or any defect therein shall not invalidate any redemption. (d) Prior to any Redemption Date, the City shall deposit with the Paying Agent an amount of money sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of all the Bonds or portions of Bonds that are to be redeemed on that date. (e) Official notice of redemption having been given as aforesaid, the Bonds or portions of Bonds to be redeemed shall become due and payable on the Redemption Date at the Redemption Price therein specified, and from and after the Redemption Date (unless the City defaults in the payment of the Redemption Price) such Bonds or portion of Bonds shall cease to bear interest. Upon surrender of such Bonds for redemption in accordance with such notice, the Redemption Price of such Bonds shall be paid by the Paying Agent. Installments of interest due on or prior to the Redemption Date shall be payable as herein provided for payment of interest. Upon surrender for any partial redemption of any Bond, there shall be prepared for the Registered Owner a new Bond or Bonds of the same Stated Maturity in the amount of the unpaid principal as provided herein. All Bonds that have been redeemed shall be cancelled and destroyed by the Paying Agent as provided herein and shall not be reissued. (f) The Paying Agent is also directed to comply with any mandatory standards established by the Securities and Exchange Commission and then in effect for processing redemptions of municipal securities. Failure to comply with such standards shall not affect or invalidate the redemption of any Bond. ARTICLE IV SECURITY FOR BONDS Section 401. Security for Bonds. (a) The Bonds shall be special obligations of the City payable solely from, and secured as to the payment of principal and interest by a pledge of, the Net Revenues of the System, and the City hereby pledges said Net Revenues to the payment of the principal of and interest on the Bonds. The Bonds shall not be or constitute a general obligation of the City, nor shall they constitute an indebtedness of the City within the meaning of any constitutional, charter or statutory provision, limitation or restriction, and the taxing power of the City is not pledged to the payment of the Bonds either as to principal or interest.

The City covenants and agrees that from and after the delivery of the Bonds, and continuing as long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding hereunder, all of the Revenues shall as and when received be paid and deposited into the Revenue Fund unless otherwise specifically provided by this Ordinance.

The amounts required to be paid and credited to the Debt Service Account pursuant to this Section shall be so paid at the same time and on a parity with the amounts at the time required to be paid and credited to the debt service accounts established for the payment of principal and interest on Parity Bonds under the provisions of the Parity Ordinances. Amounts deposited in the Debt Service Account as accrued interest or as capitalized interest in accordance with Section 502(b) hereof, if any, shall be credited against the City’s payment obligations as set forth in subsection (b)(1) of this Section. If at any time the moneys in the Revenue Fund are insufficient to make in full the payments and credits at the time required to be made to the Debt Service Account and to the debt service accounts established to pay the principal of and interest on the Senior Lien Bonds and any Parity Bonds, the available moneys in the Revenue Fund shall be allocated first in accordance with the provisions of the Senior Lien Ordinance and then shall be divided among such debt service accounts in proportion to the respective principal amounts of said series of bonds at the time outstanding which are payable from the moneys in said debt service accounts.

All moneys deposited with the Paying Agent shall be deemed to be deposited in accordance with and subject to all of the provisions contained in this Ordinance. Section 604.

In any case where a Bond Payment Date is not a Business Day, then payment of principal, Redemption Price or interest need not be made on such Bond Payment Date but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on such Bond Payment Date, and no interest shall accrue for the period after such Bond Payment Date. Section 605. Nonpresentment of Bonds. In the event any Bond shall not be presented for payment when the principal thereof becomes due at Maturity, if funds sufficient to pay such Bond shall have been made available to the Paying Agent all liability of the City to the Registered Owner thereof for the payment of such Bond shall forthwith cease, determine and be completely discharged, and thereupon it shall be the duty of the Paying Agent to hold such funds, without liability for interest thereon, for the benefit of the Registered Owner of such Bond, who shall thereafter be restricted exclusively to such funds for any claim of whatever nature on his part under this Ordinance or on, or with respect to, said Bond. If any Bond is not presented for payment within one year following the date when such Bond becomes due at Maturity, the Paying Agent shall repay to the City without liability for interest thereon the funds theretofore held by it for payment of such Bond, and such Bond shall, subject to the defense of any applicable statute of limitation, thereafter be an unsecured obligation of the City, and the Registered Owner thereof shall be entitled to look only to the City for payment, and then only to the extent of the amount so repaid to it by the Paying Agent, and the City shall not be liable for any interest thereon and shall not be regarded as a trustee of such money.

In determining the amount held in any fund or account under any of the provisions of this Ordinance, obligations shall be valued at the lower of the cost or the market value thereof. If and when the amount held in any fund or account shall be in excess of the amount required by the provisions of this Ordinance, the City shall direct that such excess be paid and credited to the Revenue Fund. ARTICLE VIII GENERAL COVENANTS AND PROVISIONS The City covenants and agrees with each of the Registered Owners of the Bonds that so long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding it will comply with each of the following covenants: Section 801. Efficient and Economical Operation. The City will continuously own and will operate the System as a revenue producing System in an efficient and economical manner and will keep and maintain the same in good repair and working order. The City will establish and maintain such rules and regulations for the use of the System as may be necessary to assure maximum utilization and most efficient operation of the System. Section 802. Rate Covenant. The City in accordance with and subject to applicable legal requirements will fix, establish, maintain and collect such rates and charges for the use and services furnished by or through the System as will produce revenues sufficient to (a) pay the Expenses of the System, (b) pay the principal of and interest on the Bonds as and when the same become due at the Maturity thereof or on any Interest Payment Date, and (c) enable the City to have in each fiscal year Net Revenues not less than 110% of the Debt Service Requirements for such fiscal year. The City will require the prompt payment of accounts for service rendered by or through the System and will
promptly take whatever action is legally permissible to enforce and collect delinquent charges. The City will, from time to time as often as necessary, in accordance with and subject to applicable legal requirements, revise the rates and charges aforesaid in such manner as may be necessary or proper so that the Net Revenues will be sufficient to cover the obligations under this Section and otherwise under the provisions of this Ordinance. If in any fiscal year Net Revenues are an amount less than as hereinbefore provided, the City will immediately employ a Consultant to make recommendations with respect to such rates and charges. A copy of the Consultant’s report and recommendations shall be filed with the City Clerk and the Purchaser and shall be furnished to any Registered Owner of the Bonds requesting a copy of the same, at the cost of such Registered Owner. The City shall, to the extent feasible, follow the recommendations of the Consultant. Section 803. Reasonable Charges for all Services. None of the facilities or services provided by the System will be furnished to any user (excepting the City itself) without a reasonable charge being made therefor. If the Revenues are at any time insufficient to pay the Expenses of the System and also to pay all interest on and principal of the Bonds as and when the same become due, then the City will thereafter pay into the Revenue Fund a fair and reasonable payment in accordance with effective applicable rates and charges for all use and services furnished to the City by the System, and such payments will continue so long as the same may be necessary in order to prevent or reduce the amount of any default in the payment of the interest on or principal of the Bonds. Section 804. Restrictions on Mortgage or Sale of System. The City will not mortgage, pledge or otherwise encumber the System or any part thereof, nor will it sell, lease or otherwise dispose of the System or any material part thereof; provided, however, the City may: (a) sell at fair market value any portion of the System which has been replaced by other similar property of at least equal value, or which ceases to be necessary for the efficient operation of the System, and in the event of sale, the City will apply the proceeds to either (1) redemption of Outstanding Bonds in accordance with the provisions governing repayment of Bonds in advance of Stated Maturity, or (2) replacement of the property so disposed of by other property the revenues of which shall be incorporated into the System as hereinbefore provided; (b) cease to operate, abandon or otherwise dispose of any property which has become obsolete, nonproductive or otherwise unusable to the advantage of the City; (c) lease, (1) as lessor, any real or personal property which is unused or unimproved, or which has become obsolete, nonproductive or otherwise unusable to the advantage of the City, or which is being acquired as a part of a lease/purchase financing for the acquisition and/or improvement of such property; and/or (2) as lessee, with an option of the City to purchase, any real or personal property for the extension and improvement of the System.

The City shall pay any fees and expenses of such Insurance Consultant in connection therewith. The cost of all insurance obtained pursuant to the requirements of this Section shall be paid as an Expense out of the Revenues of the System. Section 806. Books, Records and Accounts. The City will install and maintain proper books, records and accounts in which complete and correct entries will be made of all dealings and transactions of or in relation to the System.

(b) Within 30 days after the completion of each such audit, a copy thereof shall be filed in the office of the City Clerk, and a duplicate copy of said audit shall be mailed to the Purchaser. Such audits shall at all times during the usual business hours be open to the examination and inspection by any taxpayer, any user of the services of the System, any Registered Owner of any of the Bonds, or by anyone acting for or on behalf of such taxpayer, user or Registered Owner. (c) As soon as possible after the completion of the annual audit, the governing body of the City shall review such audit, and if any audit shall disclose that proper provision has not been made for all of the requirements of this Ordinance, the City will promptly cure such deficiency and will promptly proceed to increase the rates and charges to be charged for the use and services furnished by the System as may be necessary to adequately provide for such requirements. Section 809. Right of Inspection. The Purchaser or any Registered Owner or Owners of 10% of the principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding shall have the right at all reasonable times to inspect the System and all records, accounts and data relating thereto, and shall be furnished all such information concerning the System and the operation thereof which the Purchaser or such Registered Owner or Owners may reasonably request. Section 810. Administrative Personnel. The City shall use its best efforts to employ at all times administrative personnel experienced and well qualified to operate the System.

Section 811. Performance of Duties and Covenants. The City will faithfully and punctually perform all duties, covenants and obligations with respect to the operation of the System now or hereafter imposed upon the City by the Constitution and laws of the State of Missouri and by the provisions of this Ordinance. Section 812. Tax Covenants. (a) The City covenants and agrees that it will comply with all applicable provisions of the Code, including Sections 103 and 141 through 150, necessary to maintain the exclusion from federal gross income of the interest on the Bonds. (b) The City also covenants and agrees to comply with all provisions and requirements of the Federal Tax Certificate, which is hereby approved, with such changes therein as shall be approved by the Mayor, which officer is hereby authorized to execute the Federal Tax Certificate for and on behalf of the City, such officer’s signature thereon being conclusive evidence of his approval thereof. Section 813. Parity Bond Certification. The City hereby represents and covenants that the Bonds directed to be issued by this Ordinance are so issued in full compliance with the restrictions and conditions upon which the City may issue additional bonds payable out of the revenues derived from the operation of the System and which stand on a parity with the Series A Bonds heretofore issued and outstanding, as set forth and contained in the
(1) Certify that the average annual Net Revenues as set forth in the two most recent annual audits for the fiscal years immediately preceding the issuance of additional bonds shall have been equal to at least 110% of the Average Annual Debt Service required to be paid out of said revenues in all succeeding fiscal years on account of both principal (at maturity or upon mandatory redemption) and interest becoming due with respect to all System Revenue Bonds of the City, including the additional bonds proposed to be issued. In determining the Net Revenues for the purpose of this subsection, the City may retain a Consultant who may adjust said Net Revenues by adding thereto, in the event the City has made any increase in rates for the use and services of the System and such increase has been in effect at any time during the two fiscal years for which audits are available preceding the issuance of additional bonds, the amount, as estimated by the Consultant, of the additional Net Revenues which would have resulted from the operation of the System during said fiscal years had such rate increase been in effect for the entire period; or (2) Obtain a certificate from a Consultant that the average annual Net Revenues projected for the two fiscal years immediately following the fiscal year in which the improvements to the System, the cost of which is being financed by such additional bonds, are to be in commercial operation, shall be equal to at least 110% of the Average Annual Debt Service required to be paid out of said revenues in all succeeding fiscal years following such commercial operation on account of both principal (at maturity or upon mandatory redemption) and interest becoming due with respect to all System Revenue Bonds of the City, including the additional bonds proposed to be issued. In determining the projected Net Revenues for the purpose of this subsection, the Consultant may adjust said Net Revenues by adding thereto any estimated increase in Net Revenues resulting from any increase in rates for the use and services of the System which, in the opinion of the Consultant, are economically feasible and reasonably considered necessary based on projected operations of the System. (c) Additional revenue bonds of the City issued under the conditions set forth in this Section shall stand on a parity with the Bonds and shall enjoy complete equality or lien on and claim against the Net Revenues with the Bonds, and the City may make equal provision for paying said bonds and the interest thereon out of the Revenue Fund and may likewise provide for the creation of reasonable debt service accounts and debt service reserve accounts for the payment of such additional bonds and the interest thereon out of moneys in the Revenue Fund. Section 903. Junior Lien Bonds and Other Obligations. Nothing in this Section contained shall prohibit or restrict the right of the City to issue additional revenue bonds or other revenue obligations for any lawful purpose in connection with the operation of the System and to provide that the principal of and interest on said revenue bonds or obligations shall be payable out of the Net Revenues of the System, provided that at the time of the issuance of such additional revenue bonds or obligations the City shall not be in default in the performance of any covenant or agreement contained in this Ordinance (unless such additional revenue bonds or obligations are being issued to provide funds to cure such default), and provided further that such additional revenue bonds or obligations shall be junior and subordinate to the Bonds so that if at any time the City shall be in default in paying either interest on or principal of the Bonds, or if the City shall be in default in making any payments required to be made by it under the provisions of paragraphs (a) and (b) of Section 602 of this Ordinance, the City shall make no payments of either principal of or interest on said junior and subordinate revenue bonds or obligations until said default or defaults be cured. In the event of the issuance of any such junior and subordinate revenue bonds or obligations, the City, subject to the provisions aforesaid, may make provision for paying the principal of and interest on said revenue bonds or for paying said obligations out of moneys in the Revenue Fund. Section 904. Refunding Bonds. The City shall have the right, without complying with the provisions of Section 902 hereof to refund any of the Bonds under the provisions of any law then available, and the refunding bonds so issued shall enjoy complete equality of pledge with any of the Bonds which are not refunded, if any, upon the Net Revenues of the System; provided, however,
that if only a portion of the Bonds are refunded and if said Bonds are refunded in such manner that the refunding bonds bear a higher average rate of interest or become due on a date earlier than that of the Bonds which are refunded, then said Bonds may be refunded without complying with the provisions of Section 902 hereof only by and with the written consent of the Registered Owners of a majority in principal amount of the Bonds not refunded. ARTICLE X DEFAULT AND REMEDIES Section 1001. Acceleration of Maturity Upon Default. The City covenants and agrees that if it defaults in the payment of the principal of or interest on any of the Bonds as the same shall become due on any Bond Payment Date, or if the City or its governing body or any of the officers, agents or employees thereof fail or refuse to comply with any of the provisions of this Ordinance or of the constitution or statutes of the State of Missouri, and such default continues for a period of 60 days after written notice specifying such default has been given to the City by the Registered Owner of any Bond then Outstanding, then, at any time thereafter and while such default continues, the Registered Owners of 25% in principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding may, by written notice to the City filed in the office of the City Clerk or delivered in person to said City Clerk, declare the principal of all Bonds then Outstanding to be due and payable immediately, and upon any such declaration given as aforesaid, all of said Bonds shall become and be immediately due and payable, anything in this Ordinance or in the Bonds contained to the contrary notwithstanding. This provision, however, is subject to the condition that if at any time after the principal of said Outstanding Bonds has been so declared to be due and payable, all arrears of interest upon all of said Bonds, except interest accrued but not yet due on such Bonds, and all arrears of principal upon all of said Bonds has been paid in full and all other defaults, if any, by the City under the provisions of this Ordinance and under the provisions of the statutes of the State of Missouri have been cured, then and in every such case the Registered Owners of a majority in principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding, by written notice to the City given as hereinbefore specified, may rescind and annul such declaration and its consequences, but no such rescission or annulment shall extend to or affect any subsequent default or impair any rights consequent thereon. Section 1002. Other Remedies. The provisions of this Ordinance, including the covenants and agreements herein contained, shall constitute a contract between the City and the Registered Owners of the Bonds, and the Registered Owner or Owners of not less than 10% in principal amount of the Bonds at the time Outstanding shall have the right for the equal benefit and protection of all Registered Owners of Bonds similarly situated: (a) by mandamus or other suit, action or proceedings at law or in equity to enforce the rights of such Registered Owner or Owners against the City and its officers, agents and employees, and to require and compel duties and obligations required by the provisions of this Ordinance or by the constitution and laws of the State of Missouri; (b) by suit, action or other proceedings in equity or at law to require the City, its officers, agents and employees to account as if they were the trustees of an express trust; and (c) by suit, action or other proceedings in equity or at law to enjoin any acts or things which may be unlawful or in violation of the rights of the Registered Owners of the Bonds. Section 1003. Limitation on Rights of Bondowners. No one or more Bondowners secured hereby shall have any right in any manner whatever by his or their action to affect, disturb or prejudice the security granted and provided for herein, or to enforce any right hereunder, except in the manner herein provided, and all proceedings at law or in equity shall be instituted, had and maintained for the equal benefit of all Registered Owners of such Outstanding Bonds. Section 1004. Remedies Cumulative. No remedy conferred herein upon the Bondowners is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy, but each such remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to every other remedy and may be exercised without exhausting and without regard to any other remedy conferred herein. No waiver of any default or breach of duty or contract by the Registered Owner of any Bond shall extend to or affect any subsequent default or breach of duty or contract or shall impair any rights or remedies consequent thereon. No delay or omission of any Bondowner to exercise any right or power accruing upon any default shall impair any such right or power or shall be construed to be a waiver of any such default or acquiescence therein. Every substantive right and every remedy conferred upon the Registered Owners of the Bonds by this Ordinance may be enforced and exercised from time to time and as often as may be deemed expedient. If any suit, action or proceedings taken by any Bondowner on account of any default or to enforce any right or exercise any remedy has been discontinued or abandoned for any reason, or shall have been determined adversely to such Bondowner, then, and in every such case, the City and the Registered Owners of the Bonds shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder, respectively, and all rights, remedies, powers and duties of the Bondowners shall continue as if no such suit, action or other proceedings had been brought or taken. Section 1005. No Obligation to Levy Taxes. Nothing contained in this Ordinance shall be construed as imposing on the City any duty or obligation to levy any taxes either to meet any obligation incurred herein or to pay the principal of or interest on the Bonds.

Any moneys and Defeasance Obligations that at any time shall be deposited with the Paying Agent or other commercial bank or trust company by or on behalf of the City, for the purpose of paying and discharging any of the Bonds or the interest payments thereon, shall be and are hereby assigned, transferred and set over to the Paying Agent or other bank or trust company in trust for the respective Registered Owners of such Bonds, and such moneys shall be and are hereby irrevocably appropriated to the payment and discharge thereof.

FSA County Committee Nominations Lewis County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director John Wheeler announced that county committee election nominations began June 15, 2014. Farmers, ranchers and landowners are encouraged to nominate farmer and rancher candidates to serve on their local FSA county committee by the Aug. 1, 2014, deadline. Elected county committee members serve a three-year term and are responsible for making decisions on FSA disaster, conservation, commodity, and price support programs, as well as other important federal farm program issues. â€œCounty Committees are unique to FSA and are a valuable resource that gives locally-elected farmers and ranchers who par-
ticipate in FSA programs the opportunity to impact farm programs at the local level,â€? said Wheeler â€œI hope to see a high level of participation during the nomination and election process,â€? he said. Farmers and ranchers may nominate themselves or others. Organizations representing minorities and women also may nominate candidates. To become a candidate, an eligible individual must sign the nomination form, FSA-669A. The form and other information about FSA county committee elections are available at www.fsa.usda.gov/elections. Nomination forms for the 2014 election must be postmarked or received in the local USDA Service Center by close of business on Aug. 1, 2014. Elections will take place
this fall. â€œIn order to have fair representation of the demographics and agricultural interests in the community, I encourage all producers, including women, minority and beginning farmers and ranchers to participate in the nomination and election process,â€? said Wheeler. FSA will mail ballots to eligible voters beginning Nov. 3, 2014. Ballots are due back to the local county office either via mail or in person by Dec. 1, 2014. Newly elected committee members and alternates take office on Jan. 1, 2015. For more information about county committees, please contact the Lewis County FSA office at 573767-5274 or visit www.fsa. usda.gov.

New commissioner credits mentors for his conservation commitment
Gov. Nixon has nominated Lewis County native David W. Murphy to a term on the Missouri Conservation Commission.
David W. Murphy, nominated to serve on the Missouri Conservation Commission, is a living example of what outdoor mentorship can accomplish. He says he wants to pay forward the gifts he has received. Gov. Jeremiah â€œJayâ€? Nixon announced the nomination June 4. If confirmed by the Missouri Senate, Murphy would serve a term ending June 30, 2019. Murphy, 59, is a Lewis County native. He owns and operates a 376-acre farm in Clark County, where his family has been farming since 1857. He grew up driving a tractor, tending hogs and cattle, and hunting and fishing with his family. Murphy earned a bach-
elor of science degree in forest, fisheries and wildlife and a masterâ€™s degree in wildlife management, both from the University of Missouri-Columbia. After college he worked as a regional director and field supervisor for the National Wild Turkey Federation. He recently retired from a 10-year stint as executive director for the Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM). In 2009 Outdoor Life magazine named Murphy one of 25 Most Influential People for the Future of Hunting and Fishing. Murphy traces the roots of his conservation career to his earliest childhood memories. â€œMy family were hunters and fishermen all the way back before the Con-
servation Department was formed,â€? he says. â€œMy great grandfather was a market hunter, and my dad and his father always had dogs to hunt quail and raccoons. I can remember my dad carrying me in his arms on a coon hunt.â€? Murphy says his maternal grandfather introduced him to fishing, and he grew up being a river rat. From all the foregoing, Murphyâ€™s career track might seem predictable. But he says there is more to his story than strong family ties to the outdoors. Three conservation agents, who were family friends, also played key roles in shaping his life goals. Conservation agent Bob King would go on to become chief of the Conservation Departmentâ€™s Protection Division. Phil Rice later served as Protection Division supervisor in northwest Missouri. Then there was Conservation Agent Dean Novel. â€œDean was a profound influence on me because of the guidance he gave me,â€? says Murphy. â€œI told him one day I wanted to be a conservation agent just like him. He told me I was doing pretty well in school, so I ought to become a biologist.â€? Murphy also credits his third-grade teacher, Mrs.
Bowen, for encouraging his budding interest in nature. She noticed his keen interest in animals when he just a first-grader and gave his teacher, Mable Walker, a copy of The Wild Mammals of Missouri by Charles and Elizabeth Schwartz for him to use while learning to read. That book, with its wealth of lifelike illustrations and details about the lives of animals, fired his imagination. â€œI donâ€™t know where I would be today without those folks who took an interest in me when I was young,â€? says Murphy, â€œbut you can bet I wouldnâ€™t have been able to do as much as I have.â€? When he retired earlier this year, Murphy had business cards printed up proclaiming his new title â€“ citizen. â€œI think thatâ€™s the most honored title a person can have,â€? he says. â€œIt was citizens who had the love of nature, the vision and the drive to pass a constitutional amendment in 1936 removing conservation from political control. It was citizens who decided to amend the constitution again 40 years later to provide stable funding for their conservation department.â€? Murphy looked forward to retirement as a time
when he could fully enjoy his wife, Gunilla, and their daughters and grandchildren, not to mention hunting and fishing. Instead, he finds himself jumping back into the public arena, where he spent 25 years. He says he accepted Gov. Nixonâ€™s appointment for the same reason he took the job as CFMâ€™s director â€“ to help protect Missouriâ€™s unique system of conservation governance. Murphy also notes that a huge majority of Missourians approve of the job the Conservation Department is doing. He wants to persuade the minority that conservation is a wise investment in the future. â€œWe owe them an explanation, some understanding of why conservation has value. We have to explain it well enough so it makes sense to people if we want it to continue. I think my background has positioned me pretty well to be that standard bearer. I feel a great obligation to ensure that this world is as good a place as I can leave it for my grandson and for other grandsons and granddaughters out there.â€? One area of conservation policy that has long been of special interest to Murphy is mentorship of young outdoors people. His personal involvement
began many years ago when he noticed that fathers often brought their children along on fishing trips but ignored them while engaged in fishing. Murphy began bringing extra fishing gear with him when he went fishing and discovered that he got more enjoyment from helping children discover fishing than from fishing for himself. Over the years he has advocated for measures to encourage young Missouriansâ€™ involvement in traditional outdoor activities. One example is youth hunting seasons, which allow adults to give their full attention to upcoming hunters. He says he hopes to continue promoting outdoor mentorship on the Conservation Commission, maintaining Missouriâ€™s national leadership in hunter recruitment. â€œWe are one of the few states in the nation with a positive hunter-replacement ratio,â€? says Murphy. â€œI would like to be part of keeping it that way.â€? David W. Murphy, nominated to serve on the Missouri Conservation Commission, is a living example of what outdoor mentorship can accomplish. He says he wants to pay forward the gifts he has received.

deer-related issues. The open-house format lets attendees concentrate on their particular interests, asking questions and discussing their ideas one-on-one with biologists and other key staff. Conservation Department Deputy Director Tom Draper says the goal of the meetings is to provide information and get feedback. â€œWe need people to tell us what they want Missouriâ€™s deer population to look like and what combination of hunting seasons, bag limits, and hunting methods they want the Conservation Department to use to achieve their goals,â€? says Draper. Deer hunting is an important part of the stateâ€™s outdoors heritage. Generations of Missourians have enjoyed this activity and deer season is still
an event hunters of many ages participate in annually. Missouri has nearly 520,000 deer hunters and almost two million wildlife watchers who enjoy deer. Activities related to deer hunting and watching annually generates $1 billion in economic activity for thousands of Missouri businesses and hundreds of communities around the state, and support more than 12,000 Missouri jobs. The appreciation people have for deer is further proof of what many state residents already know: Missourians care about conserving forests, fish and wildlife. If people want more information about these open houses or are unable to attend but still want to review the information presented and provide comments, they can go online to mdc.mo.gov/ DeerOpenHouse.
